(COLORADO SPRINGS) — Court Appointed Special Advocates of the Pikes Peak Region (CASA) are calling on community members to become CASA Volunteers.

CASA said, “For many children across Colorado, the beginning of summer break signifies relaxation and fun, but for the thousands of Colorado children living in abusive or unstable homes, summer break can create additional stress and uncertainty.”

If you would like to know more about how to volunteer or become a Court Appointed Special Advocate, the next Volunteer Information Sessions will be on June 13 and June 21. You can sign up with the link above.

Without a school routine, these children can be placed into unpredictable situations where abuse or neglect can easily go undetected, according to CASA.
